We Do It All.

As Horton Interiors have a standalone team of the best interior designers in Dubai, quality assured fit-out team, and dedicated project managers, we can deliver your project from inception to occupation without compromising creativity, quality, or time management.

This is often the preferred route for clients (mainly our repeat clients) as it has several benefits and advantages over the traditional method of appointing designers and fit-out teams separately. The most obvious benefit of choosing the Design & Build pathway is having one centralised team to deal with. Communication is straightforward, and responsibilities are not shared, which can reduce the overall risk of your project.

There are also many opportunities to optimise the project timeframe with Design & Build, as it illuminates time spent tendering the design and fit-out works separately, and it also offers the opportunity to overlap design, procurement, approval, and construction phases, which can save weeks on a project.

The cross-discipline coordination can also be a lot faster and smoother, as all teams (design, finance, project management, and construction) sit under the same umbrella.

In most cases having a one-stop shop for all works has a substantial cost savings for our clients. If you think Design & Build might be a good option for your project, please get in touch. We can connect you with our previous clients, who can tell you about the benefits of choosing the Design & Build route.

Horton Interiors follow the RIBA Plan of Work 2020 For all projects.

Design & Build process.

We establish all your project aspirations and requirements over a cup of coffee in our material library and think tank. In addition, our team will gather the necessary information and documentation so that the project can begin smoothly.

Using the information we gathered during the briefing and preparation stage, our team will develop a concept. Throughout this process, we collaborate regularly to develop a concept genuinely tailored to your needs. As a result, you will be able to fully visualise your design by the end of this phase using 3D renderings, furniture layouts, outline material specifications, and an initial cost plan.

This stage involves implementing the agreed concept throughout all areas of the space, selecting actual finishes from physical samples, and providing a more detailed and updated fit-out cost plan.

We will prepare all the documentation required to execute the fit-out exactly as per the concept during this phase, including detailed layouts (or BIM models if required), drawings, and FF&E specifications, which are included in the Issue For Construction (IFC) package. In addition, our team will also prepare all the required documentation for compulsory approvals and building permits, as well as finalise the fit-out cost plan.

Manufacturing & Construction

During the Manufacturing & Construction phase and after the tender process and obtaining necessary approvals and permits, our team manages and executes the full fit-out works in line with the provided concept design, design drawings, and specifications.

As an ISO 9001 & 45001 certified company, we have robust quality assurance and health and safety measures in place to ensure a well-managed and organised execution. In addition to that, We can accommodate any further design development or changes. 

To ensure the client’s satisfaction, we arrange a site inspection after the work is completed, perform necessary testing and commissioning and obtain final authority approval. 

Additionally, we provide handover requirements such as keys, as-built drawings, operation manuals, and warranties. We always aim to make the transition to the new space smooth and enjoyable, offering ongoing contact and aftercare support for any teething issues, along with complete maintenance for the standard 12-month Defects and Liability period, including AC servicing, electrical and plumbing check-ups, and unlimited call-outs.
